I've had alopecia since I was 10. I'm mostly AT/AU, though sometimes I can grow a mohawk ;)
I've come a long way from keeping my alopecia a secret and feeling ugly, to to loving how I look bald while also enjoying over 40 wigs! I've also been running a support group in Vancouver since 2009, raised awareness on TV, and held a charity fashion show donating 100% to alopecia.
Life should not be any less colourful because of alopecia. It should be more colourful because of it!
In our alopecia support group, we laugh, share stories, and sometimes cry. We always leave feeling better and inspired.
If you're in Vancouver, Canada (or nearby in Canada or US), I'd like to invite you to join our meetup!
Thanks for the warm welcome, Tanya. My non-screen name is Jennifer. I would love to join the meetup! Unfortunately I am going to be out of town for a couple of weeks in early October so I'll be missing any local events taking place at that time. but please count me in for the future for sure! I'm looking forward to meeting more people who have this condition in common. :)
